  • Messed up keg

    I have had 3 kegs in my kegerator and this is the second time this has happened and I have no idea what's causing it. I have an insiginia kegerator from Best buy all original parts and I have gotten budlight 3 times. So here is what happened it was pouring fine and I am about half way done with the keg, then I take a week off of drinking and I go for another glass and only co2 comes out. When I disconnected the keg the top looked like this. I have tried bending it back but as soon as I re couple it, it shifts back to the side. The second keg I put in there was 100% fine I finished the whole thing no trouble so I got a 3rd keg and after about a month and half a keg it happened again. I didn't touch the keg and it has been pouring find for over a month and it happened again.

    I keep it at 8 psi and leave the gas on all the time and I cannot keep returning half kegs.

    Clearly something really wrong with either the coupler or your technique. When you couple the keg, are you screwing in the coupler first and then pulling the lever down? Are you sure it is a D coupler? Post a picture of the coupler. Post a picture of the tapped keg. The way it is supposed to work is the probe of the coupler pushes the silver ball down by moving straight down on top of it. There shouldn

        One more pic - the coupler with the probe extended but not on the keg - just want to see how far the probe comes out and if it

          !st thing to do is educate your self on a balanced keg. 8 psi is never going to be right. What beer are you pouring? I followed your post for the last 3 days and still can't figure out what you bent back? A split spear would account for just co2 but the likelihood of 2 out of 3 kegs is against the odds.

            If it's the dog on the coupler ( the rectangular piece jutting inwards) that might explain it but once bent and forced back the 2nd time they would just break loose. Just get a decent coupler they'renot that expensive here and above average quality.
